I've just watched a video from Bennetts on YouTube about Carvenal Gloves. I've seen their ads several times on Facebook. Something about their ads always screamed scam to me so I never went near them but Bennetts have done some research and it looks pretty bad. Seems that if you have these you'd be better off throwing them in the bin.

Is wind noise causing tinnitus and hearing loss for riders? - EGGCELLENT earplugs could help prevent this from happening
Did you know riding a motorbike at 62mph typically generates wind noise of 95dB, which can significantly increase the chances of damaging your hearing permanently?
This is according to a recent study carried out in Germany
So what damage could occur to your hearing and how likely is this to happen? 
According to BTA - British Tinnitus Association around 1 in 5 of the U.K population are effected by noise induced hearing loss and a further 10% of the U.K Population are effected by tinnitus a loud ringing in the ears
Over the past 5 years we’ve been working on sharing the message far and wide to musicians, motorbike riders, shooters and construction workers 
Did you know that using something as simple as an earplug could help prevent this on your next journey?
We’ve been making slight improvements to our EGGZ Motorbike earplugs over the years and finally we think we’ve nailed it!
We are not talking about outdated foam earplugs or earplugs that block all noise while riding
We’ve created EGGZ earplugs that allow
Super comfort (wear all day) Still hear sirens and intercom Cuts out the harmful noise levels using an acoustic filter More importantly cuts out wind noise and reduces sounds by 24dB

Having moved over to the dark side with a Harley due to be collected in a week or two, I've decided to move on a couple of brilliant Triumph jackets that I bought a while back and have since worn about once each (I currently have NINE jackets). They're both size medium and fit true to size, so good for a 40" chest and not too rotund a physique.
The first is the Beinn GTX, which you can find here. It's a superb technical jacket with Gore-Tex inner jacket (which can be worn on its own) and a myriad of features - do read the description in the link.

The second is another Gore-Tex jacket, this time the T1 Deck. The details of this one can be found here (just scroll down a bit for the spec), but again it's a beautifully crafted jacket, with multiple season use.

At retail the combined priced would be £1050. I was lucky enough to pick them up in the sale, though, and am now prepared to let them go as a pair for just £275 F2F, or £285 delivered. I haven't posted photos of them hanging from a door handle (but can if you really want me to) - they're in perfect condition and complete with all the armour that they came with.

For sale is my son's CB125F in yellow. It's in great condition for a 6 year old bike, with generally no more than minor signs of use (please see photos, which form a part of this description) and just 9219 miles on the clock backed up by full service and MOT history. Any noticeable blemishes are in the main on the exhaust and adjacent heel guard; for the most part the fairings and painted parts are unmarked - just one or two areas of relatively minor rubbing  or scuffing. It starts every time, and is a really reliable bike for learning, nipping around town and/or just a cheap means of transport (it's just been used for commuting but Sam now wants to try his hand with a car!).
As mentioned above the bike has done very few miles, and the service book is stamped for 12/16, 5/18, 5/19, 11/20 and 4/22. Last MOT'd on 11/4/22 with no advisories. Comes with 2 keys.
£1675 ONO. Bike located in Hertfordshire and inspection welcome.

I decided to read the small print for my renewal (Hastings) and saw there is a section on modifications, which states they include things not fitted at the time of manufacture, like heated grips, braided hoses, performance air filer and bar ends. My bike is down as having no modifications, but when I got the policy via Confused.com, there is nowhere to list them.
The bike came with dealer fitted heated grips (they are Oxford, not Kawasaki) and I have fitted a side stand puck, a larger screen, crash bungs and a Kayoko cruise control. Is that the kind of thing I should declare and if so, how much of a difference will it make? They are all mods for comfort, not speed.

Racing at the Isle of Man kicks off this weekend, and for the first time fans can watch all the action live. (Courtesy of Isle of Man TT/)
Brace yourselves, riders, race fans, and raconteurs! The most magnificent week on the motorcycling calendar is upon us! The astounding ballet of courage and velocity that is the Isle of Man TT will soon play out before our very eyes on the thirty-seven-and-three-quarter-mile, two-hundred-sixty-plus-turn Snaefell Mountain course, a track so very long, so absolutely epic, that we had to write those numbers out to do it justice. And this year, unlike all previous runnings, you may bear witness to the gallantry of the riders in real time, thanks to the monumental efforts of the Isle of Man TT itself, which presents to you the stupendous, or at the very least remarkably handy and useful, TT+ Live Pass.

Peter Hickman ended qualifying with a lock on the Superbike class, lapping at an impressive 132.874 mph. Dynastic talent Michael Dunlop leads the Superstock, Supersport, and Supertwin leaderboards. (Courtesy of Isle of Man TT/)
For a one-time payment of $24.99, fans can now view all the races live for the first time in TT history, thanks to a team-up between the IoMTT and Vimeo. All hyperbole aside, this is a remarkable deal; there are already 25 hours of high-quality video available on the site, and qualifying is not even over yet.
The live coverage features multiple on-course cameras, coverage by camera teams in two helicopters, and commentary by a full roster of top talent including the seasoned Isle of Man team of Matt Roberts and Amy Williams, plus F1 vet Jennie Gow in her debut year. Pretty much the only thing that’s missing is live on-bike footage; that was likely a little too much to hope for in the livestream’s debut year, but look for miles and miles worth of rider POV in the wrap-ups.

It's that time of year and many bikes come out of hibernation, don't become a statistic;
"A police officer has urged fellow motorcyclists to exercise caution on roads over the weekend as Scotland is set to enjoy warm weather. 
Superintendent Stewart Mackie, a keen biker, issued the warning as it was revealed 90% of motorcyclist casualties are male. 
The deputy chief of road policing said a third of those killed in motorcycle crashes are aged between 40 and 49, and a marked increase in motorbike ownership in recent months may be due to people returning to biking after many years. 
He added that more than 85% of motorbike crashes occur in rural areas and can happen in the daytime and in good weather. "

I've just got an email (see below) from MCE stating that they are cancelling all policies from the end of January. Only a few days before my renewal is due, and consequently my next year's NCB. FFS Im fairly new to bikes and only got a couple of years. They are cancelling the policy and then have the cheek to tell me to ring them for a quote under their new company. However they have me by the short and curlys as their quotes are half that of everyone else. 
Your policy of insurance is underwritten (or is provided to you) by the Company, which is in Administration.  The Company’s permission to write insurance was suspended on 5 November 2021.
Due to the financial position of the Company, the Joint Administrators intention is to disclaim all motor bike and scooter insurance policies as at 24:00hrs (being midnight) on Monday, 31 January 2022.  
This means that when your policy of insurance is disclaimed, your insurance policy will cease or, in other words, end.
This means that you will need to seek and put in place alternative insurances prior to your policy being disclaimed on 31 January 2022.  
Up until your policy is disclaimed, and on the basis that you are fully complying with the terms and conditions of your policy of insurance, your policy will remain valid.  No adjustments will be permitted to your policy from today except for administrative adjustments which do not affect the risk associated with the policy of insurance – such as correction to the spelling of a name for example.

So what plans do you have in store for the bike to keep you occupied through this long cold spell? 
For me its just remove some of the fairings and have a general clean of the nooks and crannies you can't normally reach 
I also need to reset the timing as its slightly out 
Maybe remove the rear drive shaft to lube the splines
